Faceted work from ECAL/Mathieu Rivier

Once again I’m seduced by the relative simplicity of this work by Mathieu Rivier.

A faceted structure is placed on a plinth where interaction is enabled by touching it. The shape is heat-welded semi-transparent plastic which allows the projection and detection of fingers from inside the structure. Rivier says “I particularly liked not just working on the code of a software programme but also on its material implementation.”

Hats off I say, it’s beautiful.

Lot’s of thoughts regarding 3D printing and textiles to produce a faceted surface… BIT (bring it on!)
